In the basement, at the washer facing away from the basement door, I felt eyes on my back. I turned around and the yearling was watching me, from across the yard and through the screen door and the window in the interior door. She, I believe, had been browsing on the compost pile just behind her. The blur is caused by photographing through that old metal screen, but it adds an interesting softness to a photo.
Her two adult companions, the sisters, were unconcerned about me, nibbling around and having a drink at the bird bath.
They all moved a little farther up the yard and I could run to my back door and get a photo of them all together.
I’ve painted the two girls before as they browsed in the brushy area between the back yards in a painting called “Safe”. I think I’ll do a few more.
